My closest friends and family know how much I adore my little brother. If you didn't know, well, now you know! He said something hurtful on FaceBook about me, in his status update, and I'm just bummed about it. He knows I read it so I'm sure he posted it to intentionally hurt me. Whatever the case is, I sat here crying for a good hour. Even as I write this, I'm tearing up.
I see him going down the wrong path. Possibly temporary path. Hopefully! I know I've walked it before and can't say that I regret doing so. I just wish he would spare himself the drama. Anyway... great quote about Courageous Parenting:
Imagine for a moment that your daughter was sitting on the railroad tracks and you heard the train whistle blowing. Would you warn her to get off the tracks? Or would you hesitate, worried that she might think you were being overprotective? If she ignored your warning, would you quickly move her to a safe place? Of course you would! Your love for your daughter would override all other considerations. You would value her life more than her temporary goodwill.I'm not a parent but I am a protective older sister.
This boy is my life. My heart is extremely tender for him. The circumstances surrounding his arrival into our family would only make one melt with compassion and unconditional love. I feel that for him. Since the day I laid eyes on him, I have enjoyed catering to his every need and want. Maybe I made a mistake in dedicating so much time and energy into giving him everything he desired. Maybe that's why it hurts me when he says idiotic things on his Facebook status. Maybe I'm over reacting. Maybe not.
His status was simple... "my own sister rats me out... not surprised."
Is it true?
Does it hurt me?
